History to be made in historic 75th Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race

The 2019 Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race is going to be extra special

There’s plenty to look forward to in the world of sailing, with the landmark 75th Rolex Sydney Hobart held in December.

The 2019 Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race is the 75th in the history of the race, ever since John H Illingworth asked “Why don’t we make a race of it?” – and it’s set to be the largest fleet we have seen since the 50th edition of the race.

Whether you’ve been involved in the 2018 race or not, start preparing your boat and crew for the 75th, a special celebration of the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia’s great race.

The Notice of Race for the 75th Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race is due out in March, with a fleet of 135-140 expected for this anniversary race.
